Default Rain X, like it or hate it?

Drove 250+ miles today..every bit of it with the wipers on HIGH in heavy rain. I tried some rain x yesterday that you just add to the washer fluid. I couldnt tell much difference. The wipers were a lot quieter though

Hi Kennginn! congrats BTW on future fatherhood. Its generally been a good experience for me so far...but you will worry far more than you ever thought possible. I have some rain x that you polish on too...tried it on my truck but didnt have time to do it right and never opened the bottle again. I sure coulda used something better than what I had today LOL

i use it. it does great handling water, but it makes my wipers "jump" or kind of bounce across the windshield- not as smooth as without it, but, i dont' have to use them as much either... Any suggestions?

Dump the Rain-X and try No-Touch Rainshield. Spray it on while it'* raining, let the wipers spread it. Lasts longer, easier to do, no rags.

well, maybe your first problem is that you don't add the stuff to your washer fluid, that stuff is the washer fluid, and you gotta use it a little bit before it starts working (i've used it for a while now and i love it, works great)

you know Rain-X makes a washer fluid that works great, all you do is use it as washer fluid

I've used it. It works as an additive, but not by itself. BTW.....little secret.....Rain-X washer fluid is flammable.
